South Africas peacemaker dies

BY MARCUS ELIASON Associated Press JOHANNESBURG (AP) Nelson Mandela was a master of forgiveness. South Africas first black president spent nearly a third of his life as a prisoner of apartheid, yet he sought to win over its defeated guardians in a relatively peaceful transition of power that inspired the world. As head of state, the former boxer, lawyer and inmate lunched with the prosecutor who argued successfully for his incarceration. He sang the apartheid-era Afrikaans anthem at his inauguration and traveled hundreds of miles to have tea with the widow of the prime minister in power at the time he was sent to prison. Mandelas stature as a fighter against apartheid the system of white racist rule he called evil and a seeker of peace with his enemies was on a par with that of other men he admired: American civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. and Indian independence leader Mohandas K. Gandhi, both of whom were assassinated while actively engaged in their callings. Mandelas death deprived the world of one of one of the great figures of modern history and set the stage for days of mourning and reflection about a colossus of the 20th century who projected astonishing grace, resolve and good humor. Dressed in black, South African President Jacob Zuma made the announcement on television. He said Mandela died peacefully, surrounded by family, at around 8:50 p.m.

Delphos, Ohio Weve lost our greatest son. Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father, Zuma said. Although we knew that this day would come, nothing can diminish our sense of a profound and enduring loss. At times, Mandela embraced his iconic status, appearing before a rapturous crowd in Londons Wembley Stadium soon after his 1990 release from prison. Sometimes, he sought to downplay it, uneasy about the perils of being put on a pedestal. In an unpublished manuscript, written while in prison, Mandela acknowledged that leaders of the antiapartheid movement dominated the spotlight but said they were only part of the story, and every activist was like a brick which makes up our organization. See PEACE, page 10

Holidays a good time for families to talk with older driver

older adults remain active in the community. The association believes there is a need for awareness of the solutions for safe travel options for older drivers, rather than focusing on the problems they face. The Older Driver Safety Awareness Week is held each year in December a time when families are planning holiday celebrations and can be a perfect occasion to begin conversations addressing the safety of an older family member who is still driving. In addition, it offers them a window of opportunity to plan and explore options before any crisis or accident occurs. Physical, emotional and cognitive changes in driving abilities in older adults are normal and occur at different rates and times. As these drivers plan for future transportation needs and ensure their driving safety and independence, which is an essential activity of daily living, they may want to evaluate their driving abilities through an individualized assessment by an occupational therapist. Practitioners evaluate an older drivers ability to operate a vehicle safely and are specially trained in the full scope of driving rehabilitation. Therapists can identify the individuals unique challenges and find strategies that will help them live life to its fullest by keeping them active shopping, working or volunteering and safe in their communities.

You must act soon. The WOTC is available to employers that hire qualified veterans before the new year. Here are six key facts about the WOTC: 1. Hiring Deadline. Employers hiring qualified veterans before Jan. 1, 2014, may be able to claim the WOTC. The credit was set to expire at the end of 2012. The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 extended it for one year. 2. Maximum Credit. The tax credit limit is $9,600 per worker for employers that operate a taxable business. The limit for tax-exempt employers is $6,240 per worker. 3. Credit Factors. The credit amount depends on a number of factors. They include the length of time a veteran was unemployed, the number of hours worked and the amount of the wages paid during the first year of employment. 4. Disabled Veterans. Employers hiring veterans with service-related disabilities may be eligible for the maximum tax credit. 5. State Certification. Employers must file Form 8850, Pre-Screening Notice and Certification Request for the Work Opportunity Credit, with their state workforce agency.

COLUMBUS (AP) Ohios insurance director is giving guidance to insurers who want to reissue health plans ticketed for cancellation under federal law, following a recent change announced by President Barack Obama.

Preach the Gospel


And you show that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.
2 Corinthians 3:3
Saint Francis is said to have told his followers, paraphrasing our Lord, to preach the gospel everywhere you go, with words if necessary. While this is probably a misattribution, the sentiment is certainly worth bearing in mind. That is, should we not preach the gospel with our actions as much as with our words? Indeed, when deeds and words are not in harmony, people mistrust the words and consider the preacher to be a hypocrite. We should be as concerned with our actions as with our words, at least insofar as we hold ourselves up as moral exemplars. And most of us are called to be moral exemplars, whether we want this role or not. If you are a parent, you are expected to be a moral example to your children. Most professions are expected to set an example; we expect preachers, teachers, doctors, pharmacists, bankers, and even athletes to adhere to a high moral code. Just to be a decent human being we must adhere to a high moral code of conduct. So, we should preach the gospel everywhere we go with good moral actions, and dont worry about the words.
Christopher Simon

The Herald 5


In the Waiting Room ...

with Dr. Celeste Lopez
Several weeks ago my son told me something he has never told me before. He had just finished playing a football game and he got into the car and told me that he had to get home because he had a science test to study for and he wanted to get an A. My son is not the kind of kid who has ever been especially concerned about his grades, taking a more Doris Day approach to school, you know, que sera sera (I know that is a very old song but some of you will appreciate the reference), so this concern shocked me. My first thought was that he had suffered a concussion during the game. Not a typical concussion, you understand, more like the Gilligans Island kind of concussion, where Gilligan gets hit in the head with a coconut and turns into the professor. He seemed to be acting normal otherwise, however, and I decided not to rock the boat. I brought him home and let him study to his hearts content. I had been told that eventually he would mature and his grades would be more important to him. I had hoped that this would happen eventually, I wasnt expecting it so soon. I think he may be trying to impress a girl, if that is the case, I like this girl already. Maybe he likes his teacher or it has finally sunk in that if he doesnt keep his grades up he cant play sports. He might just like the positive reinforcement he gets from the good grades. I am afraid to ask too many questions. I will just enjoy the fact that I suddenly find it unnecessary to nag him about doing his homework he just does it. I have to say I am enjoying this new maturation phase. It reminds me of a saying I heard about the weather, if you dont like the weather we are having, wait a minute. Raising children is very much like that saying,

if you dont like the phase they are in, wait a minute, it will change. Of course, the converse is true too. If you do like the phase they are in, that will change, too, so you better enjoy it. In most cases, when your child is going through a difficult phase, it seems worse to you than it really is. For instance, I have many parents who will bring their 2-year-old in convinced that they have severe anger management issues. I usually inform them that he isnt abnormal, he is just 2. Knowing what the word no means and liking the word no are two totally different things. I try to reassure them that patience and a good sense of humor will help them through this stage, and some day in the future, they will look back at this behavior and laugh. Most people who see you at the stores or restaurants and witness a tantrum will just think Oh, I remember that phase, they are not thinking any of the things that parents are convinced people are thinking. This phase will change, eventually that obstinate 2-yearold turns into a curious 3-year-old and eventually a know-it-all 6-year-old. Enjoy these phases, they will change soon enough. As for me, I am happy with my studious son and doing my best to avoid coconut trees.

Blue Jay girls survive vs. Panthers Late 1st-quarter spurt pushes
By JOHN PARENT DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com ROCKFORD Statistically, the Parkway Lady Panthers dominated the game when they hosted St. Johns on Thursday night in Rockford. When the time expired in the fourth quarter, however, it was the Lady Blue Jays who came away with a 42-41 win. Big win for us. We needed a win like that, St. Johns head coach Dan J. Grothouse said following a thrilling final period that saw two ties and six lead changes. Throughout the night, it was the Blue Jay shooting that kept them in the game. With just 55 seconds remaining in the game and the Lady Jays trailing by two, senior Amanda Boberg found an opening on the perimeter of the Parkway 2-3 zone and let fly a shot that found nothing but the bottom of the net. It was her third triple of the night. Though the Jays had taken the late 42-41 edge, Parkway would get two more chances to pull out the win. St. Johns survives a baseline jumper by Cami Hellwarth with 40 seconds to go and, after a Blue Jay turnover, the Lady Panthers turned to Hellwarth, their leading scorer, one more



Pirates past Lady Wildcats

By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com

St. Johns senior Emilie Fischbach defends against Parkways Raegan Bransteter Thursday night at Parkway. (Delphos Herald/Pat Agler) time. With 16 second left, Hellwarth dribbled left and tested the Blue Jay defense, driving into the lane. Delphos swarmed the ball handler and senior guard Brooke Zuber, who went scoreless on the night, came away with a clean steal on a play that would ultimately decide the game. We hit a big shot there at the end to take the lead and then we were able to come down and make a huge play defensively and take care of the basketball late, offered Grothouse, whose team improved to 2-2 (1-0 MAC) on the season. Bobergs late three came as little surprise as long-range shooting was a strength all night long for the Lady Jays. It was the ninth made triple of the game. Parkway made just one. See JAYS, page 7

BLUFFTON A 14-2 spurt in the last three minutes of the first period propeled host Bluffton past Jefferson 62-39 in Northwest Conference girls hardwood action Thursday night inside the Pirates Den of Bluffton High School. The first five minutes of the contest saw six lead changes and one tie, with the visitors (2-2, 0-1 NWC) holding an 11-10 lead on a deuce by senior Gabby Pimpas. Then the Lady Pirates, holding Senior Parents Night, exploded behind senior Sarah Schriner (22 markers, 7 boards, 4 steals, 3 assists). She hit treys from four different parts of the floor as she got away from the Wildcats defense. The only Jefferson score in that stretch was two singles by junior Brooke Culp 10 counters, 7 boards, 4 steals despite battling foul trouble) at 29.8 ticks. A pair of free throws by Andie Schmutz with 10.1 ticks on the board gave the hosts a 24-13 edge. Bluffton was 5-of-9 from 3-point land in the first canto, 8-of17 for the game. We were trapping quite a bit and they would pass to someone else out of the double and then her; she got away from us, Jefferson mentor Dave Hoffman explained. They shot 12-of-14 from beyond the arc against Fort



Jennings a week ago, so they can shoot the ball. Once we simply got wired on to her, she didnt get the same shots. However, we didnt do a lot well defensively all night with their balance between perimeter shooting and their size inside. The Wildcats struggled offensively after that, only scoring 26 points the rest of the night. The second period was typical: they managed 3-of-10 shooting on a cold shooting night overall (13-of-49 from the floor, 2-of-16 3-balls, for 26.5%). The Pirates were better at 23-of-56 for the contest for 41.1 percent. That included 6-of-15 in the second period. Though the Lady Cats forced six errors in the period (21 total), they committed seven of their own (19 for the game). Bluffton led 38-17 on a triple by senior Olivia Hunt (13 counters on 3 bombs) at 1:31 but senior Katie Goergens (5 points due to battling foul trouble) hit an 18-footer from the left corner with 46 ticks left for a 38-19 halftime scoreboard. The Wildcats went 5:21 of the third period without scoring, thus allowing the hosts to erect a 47-19 spread. Culp hit a pair of baskets the rest of the way and senior Rileigh Stockwell (10 counters, 9 caroms) a deuce but the Pirates got another trifecta from Hunt, this time from the left wing 4.1 ticks before the horn, for a 52-25 edge.

Browns WR Josh Gordon breaks records, perceptions

By TOM WITHERS Associated Press BEREA Josh Gordon dresses flashy and he drives a camouflaged Porsche with orange rims, a luxury car the Browns wide receiver believes is one of a kind. These days, hes pretty exclusive himself. With a 261-yard performance last week against Jacksonville, Gordon became the first player in NFL history to record consecutive 200-yard games. His 498 yards in the two games is also a league record and his 623 yards over a 3-game span is also a league mark. On Sunday at New England, Gordon can break Clevelands team record for yards in a season held by Braylon Edwards, who had 1,289 in 2007. Edwards did it in 16 games, while Gordon has racked up 1,249 in just 10 after he was suspended for the first two games this season for violating the leagues drug policy. Like his Porsche, Gordon gets places in a hurry. And to think, the Browns considered trading him. The 6-3, 225-pound Gordon is a sublime mix of speed, size and strength. Hes been timed at 4.37 seconds in the 40-yard dash and is all-around athleticism is extraordinary. At 22, hes just getting started.

NASCAR changes Hallof-Fame eligibility process

Associated Press LAS VEGAS NASCAR announced sweeping changes to the Hall-of-Fame election process Thursday, including tweaks that make Bill Elliott and Mark Martin immediately eligible for enshrinement. Among the six changes: Drivers are now eligible if they have competed for 30 or more years in NASCAR or turned 55 in the calendar year before nominating day. Previously, drivers were not eligible until they had been retired for three years, so drivers can continue to compete and still reach the hall. Martin, winner of 96 races across NASCARs three national divisions, has no plans at this time to race next year after 31 seasons in the Sprint Cup Series. Elliott, winner of the 1988 Cup title, is 58 but raced as recently as 2012. Two-time NASCAR champion Terry Labonte ran in five races in 2013 but is 57 and has competed in Cup for 36 years. Other drivers immediately eligible for Hall of Fame consideration include 4-time Truck Series champion Ron Hornaday Jr., who still competes at age 55, and Ken Schrader, who announced last months season finale at Homestead was his final race after 30 seasons. The ballot will also include only 20 nominees, down five from the first five classes. Also, any member of the nominating committee or voting panel who appeared on the previous years ballot or current years ballot will now be recused from participation in the nominating or voting process while they are on the ballot. Ned Jarrett, Bud Moore, Junior Johnson are active Hall-ofFame voters and were on the panel when they were elected. Jerry Cook is a present voter and has consistently been on the ballot. Those were the only direct changes to enshrinement as NASCAR passed on forming a veterans committee or if fewer than five should be inducted each year. We have decided that that time has not yet arrived but we will give strong consideration to revisiting both of those propositions after the 10th class is seated, said chief communications officer Brett Jewkes. This year well be seating the fifth class. Long story short, those are viable things. There was a lot of debate, a lot of discussion, but weve made the decision that we wont revisit those until the 10th class is seated. NASCAR has also established the Landmark Award for Outstanding Contributions that will begin with the 2015 class. Potential recipients could include competitors or those working in the sport as a member of a racing organization, track facility, race team, sponsor, media partner or being a general ambassador. Landmark Award winners will remain eligible for induction. Five nominees for the Landmark Award will be selected by the halls nominating committee. The winner must appear on at least 60 percent of the ballots. Beginning next year, the nominating committee will meet in person to create its ballots for both the Hall of Fame and the Landmark Award. The committee previously submitted nominees via mail to an independent accounting firm. The nominating committee will meet Feb. 21 in Daytona. NASCAR previously announced that the reigning Sprint Cup champion will be an eligible Hall-of-Fame voter starting with the 2015 class. Six-time champion Jimmie Johnson will be the first active driver to cast a ballot in voting next year. All of the changes were made after NASCAR examined the election process via discussions with current panelists. A couple things we learned through this process is that our process right now is incredibly strong and comparable to other sports halls of fame, Jewkes added. We feel very strongly about the strength of our process,and thats been borne out in the fact that we have five classes that we think are an exceptional reflection of the history of the sport. What came out of this process, it really magnified the caution we should take in comparing ourselves to other sports halls of fame. Bottom line is our sport is very unique, the industry is very unique, the structure of our ownership and competition and the feeder series and everything in our sport is very, very unique, and therefore our process will always be a little bit unique.

Donald leads, lightning ends play in Sun City

Associated Press SUN CITY, South Africa Luke Donalds rapid start at the Nedbank Golf Challenge was halted by lightning on Thursday, leaving the former top-ranked Englishman ahead by two shots on 5 under through 11 holes of an incomplete opening round. No one was able to play more than 12 holes on the first day at Sun City because of lightning and a thunderstorm. Donald began the 30-man invitational with a birdie and an eagle and was 5 under when the days second interruption for lightning forced players off for good. He was two ahead of Jamie Donaldson and Thomas Bjorn. I feel good over the ball right now and I am playing with confidence, Donald said, coming off a win in Japan two weeks ago. Wales Donaldson played 12 holes, while Denmarks Bjorn was 3 under with three birdies in his six holes. Brendon de Jonge was due to join those two on 3 under and two off the lead after spinning a wedge back into the hole from 110 yards for an eagle three on No. 9 right as the weather hooter sounded. His score wasnt yet officially registered as his playing partners hadnt completed the hole. Playing for the first time since ending last season with the FedEx Cup and European money list title, Henrik Stenson was 1 under after seven and tied for fifth, with six straight pars after a birdie on No 1. Boosted by his victory at the Phoenix Open, Donalds quick start at Sun City came off sweetly struck iron shots into the greens at his opening two holes. He also picked up back-to-back birdies at the end of his opening nine. Defending champion Martin Kaymer is in the mix at 2 under, while Charl Schwartzel led the South African challenge as one of seven players tied at 1 under par. Sergio Garica is also part of that group, as is Peter Uihlein of the United States. Ernie Els was 3 over after seven in search of his fourth title at Sun City and U.S. Open champion Justin Rose was 4 over after eight. Only Australias Peter Senior, with three double bogeys in his first six holes to crash to 8 over through 10, was worse than Rose. Having initially been kept off the course for nearly three hours through an earlier thunderstorm, the players came off for the second time in late afternoon and will all have to come back at 7:30 Friday morning to complete their opening rounds. Els is considering cutting his golf schedule even more to spend time with his family, saying life on the road after 25 seasons as a pro is getting tougher and tougher. The 4-time major winner has already slowed down over the past few years, playing 19 tournaments on the PGA Tour and only seven European Tour events last season. The 44-year-old Els expects to trim that again, he announced at the Nedbank Golf Challenge, his first tournament in a month. The South African, who turned professional in 1989, said that with his daughter Samantha now 14 and son Ben now 11 there are other things that come into play. Its always been difficult leaving the house but now you really see your kids growing up and it gets more difficult, Els said. He almost skipped the Nedbank to stay on vacation with his family and had to send Samantha back home to Florida on her own for school while he set off in search of a fourth title at Sun City. Els is recognizing the

trend with a couple of other players on tour. Family life is important and you dont want to miss out on their best years before they leave the house, he said. A lot of us are in that boat now. Phil (Mickelson) has kids the same age as mine, so does (Steve) Stricker. Guys get to my age and your kids get to teenage years and it becomes a bit of a difficult scenario. Its getting tougher and tougher. The younger guys dont have too many hassles travelling but things change. I havent really got a game plan for next year yet but I definitely have to play a slightly different schedule. Ive got to look at my schedule and see where Im going to. One thing that will remain is his commitment to trying to win another major maybe two. His British Open title in 2012, a decade after his first Claret Jug, bolstered Els hopes of another big win before he eases off completely. Im 44 and with the equipment I can really stay with the longer hitters, Els added. I feel I have a chance. I just need to sharpen up some things, get the right venue and get the right mojo. Then I think we can pull something off again. Its not going to be easy but I believe there are one or two left, so Ill keep searching.

Ronald Darby said they were at Potbellys with Winston when the accuser struck up a conversation with the quarterback and got into the cab with the three men. Once at the apartment, the teammates said they peeked through Winstons bedroom door and saw the woman having sex with the quarterback. At one point, Casher said he busted into the room to embarrass Jameis and the girl yelled at him to get out. In a later interview with police, Casher changed this part of his story, saying he went into the room because he hoped the woman would also have sex with him, something he said had happened in the past when he and Winston brought a woman to the apartment. Casher left the room and was not accused of having sex with the woman, and no other women have made accusations against Casher or Darby. Meggs office took over the case last month. Investigators interviewed the accuser, other witnesses and collected evidence before the prosecutor made his decision. He said the womans blood-alcohol content at the hospital was .04 and investigators estimated it to be about .10 at the time of the incident, based on the amount of time that had passed. The legal limit to drive in Florida is .08. They also took DNA from Winston and matched it to DNA collected from the womans underwear. DNA on her shorts matched her boyfriend at the time. The accusers family has said they pushed police to take a DNA sample from Winston earlier in the investigation, only to be told by a police detective that it would alert Winston and make the case public. The family said the accusers attorney, Patricia Carroll, was warned by police that Tallahassee is a big football town and the victim needs to think long and hard before proceeding against him because she will be raked over the coals and her life will be made miserable. Tallahassee police have defended their handling of the case.

We knew we were going to have to square up our shooters and make shots. That was the only way we were going to win this game was to knock down some shots. While the Jays were excellent from distance, the Panthers (1-3, 0-1 MAC) punished St. Johns inside. Senior center Sierra Fent drew the assignment of protecting the basket against Fischbach, who came into the contest as the leading scorer for the Lady Jays. Fent routinely turned away shot after shot by the Delphos sophomore, coming away with a season-high four blocks for Parkway. She also stepped up on the glass, pulling in 12 rebounds on the night including three on the offensive end. Where Fent may have made the biggest difference, however, was at the offensive end - a place she hasnt always asserted herself. Its there, Parkway head coach Lynn Hughes said of Fents performance underneath. She needs to be an offensive threat for us. Anytime we got her the ball, they had a hard time stopping her. The Lady Jays tried fronting the post but Parkways Raegen Bransteter was able to lob passes over the defense and set up Fent for easy layins. Other times, Fent would step away and knock down mid-range jumpers from just off the paint. In total, Fent accounted for 15 for Parkways offensive total, doing so on 7-of-13 from the floor.

That effort was all the more important because of Hellwarths foul trouble - a problem that kept her on the bench for much of the second and third quarters. Bransteter joined Fent in double figures with 10. She added four rebounds, three assists and five steals. In the second quarter, the Jays connected on three consecutive triples, taking a 16-12 lead after trailing 10-7 after one. Senior guard Emilie Fischbach drew the attention of the defense in the second half, when she connected on three of four shots, all of them from beyond the arc. She finished with 12 points to lead the St. Johns attack, with all of her scores coming from downtown. *** St. Johns (42) Zuber 0, Pohlman 0, Boberg 11, Geise 4, S.

(Continued from page 6) Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner has been impressed with Gordons growth. He, too, scoffs at the idea Gordon isnt giving 100 percent and said the 95-yard TD is proof the second-year player doesnt take any plays off. Thats why I dont pay any attention to the all the people that come in here for one or two days in August and they complained the guy doesnt work hard, he doesnt run routes, he doesnt finish, Turner said. He had already caught nine balls for 150

yards. I didnt see him not run a route full speed and he goes 95 yards and pulls away from some pretty fast guys. So all this August talk is just talk. Hes a young player thats maturing and getting a lot better and I think he can really get a lot better. We just need to keep working the way weve been working and hes been working. Gordon may have to work harder than ever on Sunday. Belichick likes to take away a teams strengths, so New Englands defensive game plan is likely to be focused on stopping Gordon or at least trying.

(Continued from page 6) The Wildcats forced 11 turnovers in the fourth period but could only manage 4-of-16 shooting. Thus, they could only get as close as the final margin. We had another poor shooting night. We had a number last year and weve had two so far this year, Hoffman added. We couldnt dig out from the hole we were in at all. We have a lot of things to work on. Jefferson ended up 11-of-23 from the foul line (47.8%), secured 33 caroms (15 offensive) and added 13 fouls. They visit Kalida for a 1 p.m. junior varsity start Saturday. Bluffton finished 8-of-13 from 15 feet (61.5%), with 46 rebounds (16 offensive) as senior Bailey Prichard notched a double-double with 18 points and 10 boards and classmate Paige Buroker added eight boards (9 assists). They added 18 fouls and host Ottoville at noon Saturday. In JV action, the Wildcats (2-2, 0-1) nearly overcame a double-digit fourth-

period deficit before the Pirates held on for a 40-35 decision. Sophomore Jessica Pimpas and Taylor Stroh led the Wildcats with 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Woman unknowingly tweeted about death of husband

PHUONG LE Associated Press SEATTLE A Washington state woman who regularly monitors police scanner traffic unknowingly live-tweeted about her husbands death in a freeway crash. In a series of gut-wrenching tweets on Wednesday that grew more frantic, the Vancouver, Wash., mother first tweeted how horrible it was when she learned someone had died on Interstate 205 near the Oregon border. Caran Johnson, who uses the handle ScanCouver, then told her Twitter followers that she was trying not to panic because her husband, who drives the freeway, wasnt picking up his phone and was late getting home. im a basketcase, she tweeted. Johnson also worried because her husband had epilepsy and was feeling faint when he left work early. She wondered whether he might have pulled over somewhere and fretted about how long she should wait for him before calling police. As the events unfolded, she messaged Washington State Patrol spokesman Will Finn directly, asking whether he had descriptions of the vehicles involved in the collision. Finn said he didnt, but it struck him as odd so he began looking into the crash. I contacted the investigator and we put two and two together. I realized I had a situation on my hands, Finn said Thursday while confirming that Johnson uses the Twitter handle ScanCouver that appeared on the tweets. Troopers later went to Johnsons home to tell her that her husband, 47-year-old Craig Johnson, had died in the collision. Caran Johnson then tweeted: its him. he died. It hits very close to home, said Abbi Russell, a Washington Transportation Department spokeswoman who is familiar with tweets from ScanCouver. Yes, it is social media, but it is a community of its own. Finn said Craig Johnsons car crossed the median about 2 p.m. Wednesday and collided with another car on I-205 about 5 miles north of Portland, Ore. The other driver, Carol S. Shelley, 54, of Tacoma, suffered serious injuries and was taken to a hospital with broken bones and internal injuries, authorities said. Finn said he held off posting a crash photo on Twitter after Caran Johnson messaged him asking about the accident, just in case her husband had been involved. He said he has never met Caran Johnson but the two follow each other on Twitter. Its a terrible situation. We dont want to tell anybody over social media that they have lost a family member. We would never do that, Finn said.

Milk prices could rise if farm bill looms

WASHINGTON (AP) A New Years deadline that could send the price of milk skyward looms over congressional negotiators as they try to reach agreement on a five-year farm bill. Theyve been tripped up by differences over the nations food stamp program and how to restructure farm subsidies. The two chambers have been far apart on both issues for more than two years. But the leaders of the House and Senate Agriculture committees expressed optimism after a private meeting Wednesday that they may be able to find resolution in time to narrowly avert the expiration of dairy subsidies on Jan. 1. If those subsidies expire, new laws will kick in that could result in decreased dairy supply on the commercial market and higher prices for a gallon of milk. Rep. Mike Conaway of Texas, a Republican on the House-Senate farm bill conference committee, said negotiators could possibly hold a public meeting next week for the conference committee to settle some of the remaining issues before the House leaves for the year on Dec. 13. But with a final deal still elusive, it seems unlikely that Congress will finish the bill before the end of the year. On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner said the bill should be extended through January while negotiators work out their differences. Boehner also contradicted the optimism of House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas, R-Okla., who said Wednesday that the two sides had made great progress.

You know, Ive not seen any real progress on the farm bill, Boehner said. And so if weve got to pass a one-month extension of the farm bill, I think we ought to be prepared to do that. An extension is not certain, however. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has said he doesnt want to extend the bill again after Congress already extended the bill at the beginning of this year. Finding a compromise on cuts to the nations $80 billion-a-year food stamp program has been the toughest obstacle over the last two years. The House passed a bill this summer that would cut $4 billion from food stamps now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP annually and allow states to create new work requirements for some recipients. The Democratic Senate, backed by President Barack Obama, passed a farm bill with $400 million annual cut, or a tenth of the House cut. Negotiators have discussed as a possibility cracking down further on a practice in some states of giving low-income people as little as $1 a year in home heating assistance, even when they dont have heating bills, in order to make them eligible for increased food stamp benefits. The Senate found its $400 million in annual cuts by requiring that recipients receive at least $10 in assistance to make them eligible, while the House doubled that cut by requiring that recipients receive $20 annually bringing the savings to around $800 million a year.

WASHINGTON (AP) With hopes of a grand bargain long gone, congressional negotiators now are seeking a more modest deal before year-end to ease the automatic spending cuts that are squeezing both the Pentagon and domestic federal programs. But the going is getting rougher. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she would withhold support from any compromise to ease across-theboard cuts until Republicans also agree to renew expiring unemployment benefits for Americas long-term jobless, adding a major complication. At the same time, conservatives are balking at a proposal to raise fees on airline tickets to pay for TSA agents as part of an agreement, another hurdle. GOP leaders, meanwhile, are preparing a backup plan for averting another government shutdown in January if theres no budget deal by then. Negotiators on Capitol Hill are trying hard to close out a deal but are facing resistance from Pelosi and other Democrats determined to add $25 billion to extend federally-paid jobless benefits. Those benefits average $269 a week to people whose 26 weeks of statepaid unemployment benefits have run out.

forces in the United States. Ryabkov added: We regret that attempt to stir up another conflict or dispute, particularly in view of the fact that Moscow and Washington recently have developed a good format of ties regarding big international issues. We wouldnt like to make such links, but in view of reaching some results in the sphere of settling major conflicts, some people in Washington needed to spoil the atmosphere. We can only assess it this way. Ryabkovs comments came as a State Department spokeswoman in Washington seemed to downplay the announcement by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in Manhattan, saying the department was reviewing the just-unsealed charges and didnt believe charges against a handful of people would damage U.S.-Russia relations.
